Designed to enhance the college-private sector partnership, NTAS 2.0 will focus this year, not only on pilot supply and training, but also on current research from academia and industry. Areas of discussion will include safety and technology in aviation, human factors, alternative fuels and propulsion, virtual reality and generational training.
Submit your abstract proposals for the 2017 NTAS 2.0 Symposium. Deadline for submissions is April 3.
“The National Training Aircraft Symposium has been a catalyst of change in aviation for nearly thirty years,” said Dr. Tim Brady, past chair of NTAS and Chancellor of Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach Campus. “NTAS has been an active partner with the aviation community whether the issue has been pilot training, air traffic organization or legislation affecting pilot jobs. NTAS remains committed to helping mold the future of aviation.”
The conference will also bring together the entire aviation value chain, from suppliers to manufacturers to producers of support products. Some features of past NTAS symposiums will remain.
“NTAS has been so successful, in part, because it is topical, it involves all aspects of the industry,” said Dr. Alan Stolzer, Dean of the College of Aviation. “The conference facilitates conversation among all participants, and that aspect will not change. We also recognize that the new generation of pilots present both opportunities and challenges for flight training, from pre-solo through airline captain, and topics chosen for NTAS 2.0 will address those challenges.”
For more information on submitting proposals based on the key topic areas of discussion, go to the NTAS website at commons.erau.edu/ntas/. Abstracts and brief summaries of posters, presentations and non-academic research may be submitted until April 3. More information can be found on the NTAS 2.0 Abstract Information webpage.
